You can rest now, Olivia

Hannah passed away three months ago today.

Woke up this morning to a text that Olivia, one of Hannah’s soul-sisters with Gaucher’s type 2, passed away.    She had just turned 3 years old a couple of days ago.  Today was to be her birthday party, a huge celebration for such a sweet little girl.

I wish I had something poignant to say right now, something that expresses how angry and how devastated I am about Olivia.  She and Hannah looked so much alike, especially when they were younger.  They really could pass as sisters.

Right now, I’m just really, really sad.



  1. I am so sorry, Carrie. :'( It’s not fair.
